Students who are interested in pursuing a career in nursing can apply to become part of the Northern Marianas College Nursing Department’s newest cohort in the Fall 2022 semester. Those who meet the program’s requirements can submit their application before or on Monday, May 11, 2022.
The selection of students will be based on the following criteria: cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher; completion of all nursing and general education prerequisites with a grade of “C” or higher; the ability to understand, speak and write in English; and a passing score in the program’s entrance exam. More information about the program’s entrance exam can be found on the NMC website’s nursing page.
The number of students selected will also depend on the number of faculty available to teach the class. At this time, the class size will be limited to 30 students. If there is not enough space for all applicants, a wait list will be established.
Students are advised to make an appointment with their nursing advisor via email as soon as possible to discuss prerequisites and transcripts in order to determine current standing and progress toward meeting eligibility requirements.
Selection of students for the Fall 2022 cohort will be completed before August 2022. A notification letter will be sent to each applicant using the address designated on the application. Application forms may be downloaded from www.marianas.edu/nursing.
